Sinusitis Information and Chronic Sinusitis Treatment

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 19, 2016 7:00 am

Chronic Sinusitis Treatment is Available for All

Chronic sinusitis has over the years caused a lot of suffering to many people without them knowing what to do in order to come out of this predicament. This type of sinusitis usually takes a longer period of time in order for it to clear compared to other forms of sinusitis. Its main cause is the allergens such as dust, pollen, mold and other pollutant that may easily be found in the environmental air. When these allergens enter the body through the nostrils, they tend to precipitate allergic reactions in the body that lead up to the release of some body compounds.

The second approach that can be used to act as a chronic sinusitis treatment is the use of medicines.Many a times, doctors are made to prescribe these drugs to their patients after conducting a sufficient diagnosis.Medicines such as antibiotics are often used to treat this infection due to the fact that, they help hinder the formation of the outer cell structure of bacteria.Without their outer cell structures, bacteria cannot survive hence the infection being treated. A common type of antibiotics being used as a chronic sinusitis treatment is the Amoxillin antibiotic which can easily be purchased over the counter from any pharmacy.Other medicinal approaches include the use of antihistamines such as Claritin and Allegra to block the action of histamine in the body.Once these antihistamines have been consumed, a drowsy effect is usually felt by the patient and so he or she is always advised not to drive or operate any kind of machinery while on this medication. We have to be very flexible when talking to children about Sinusitis. They seem to interpret things in a different way from the way we see things!

When this Takes Place,

Histamine being one of the body compounds, gets a chance to be produced and subsequently, it reacts with the cells found on the surfaces of sinus linings. When this reaction occurs, the cells get damaged and in turn, the lining is forced to swell up causing an air obstruction in the process. When air is prevented from reaching the sinus cavity, it makes it difficult for bacteria in the nostrils from being destroyed by the oxygen present in the air. As a consequence, the bacteria multiply in huge numbers and inflame the paranasal sinuses which in the end cause sinusitis to occur. When this incident happens to a person who may at the time be suffering from an immunodeficiency disease such as AIDS or Diabetes, the infection takes longer to heal and the person is said to be suffering from chronic sinusitis.

For cases where by this infection has been caused by structural abnormalities such as the presence of polyps (little growths found in the nostrils) or having a deviated septum (a bony partition dividing the two nasal air pathways), surgery is usually considered to be the best approach to act as a the chronic sinusitis treatment. For children, removal of the adenoids said to be the main air obstructors is usually the main target by surgeons since it has always been seen to be the effective way to treat this condition. On the other hand, the removal of polyps in adults is believed to the ideal surgical treatment for them.To reduce chances of contracting this infection, always avoid areas that are full of allergens such as dusty places. When a child shows a flicker of understanding when talking about Sinus, we feel that the objective of the meaning of Sinus being spread, being achieved.

However, several approaches used as chronic sinusitis treatment have been able to come up over the years. One of these approaches is the use of home remedies. Using sea water being one of the home remedies approaches to treat this type of sinusitis has proven to be effective enough. This is due to the fact that, the salt contained in the water is strong enough to drain out all the water molecules from the bacteria causing the infection through a process known as Osmosis thus killing these bacteria and in the process bringing an end to the infection. The sea water can be put to use through the use of droppers to insert the water inside the nostrils or by taking a swim in the ocean something that is widely perceived to be the safest as opposed to getting the sea water inside the nostrils through droppers.Another home remedy is to drink hot liquids such as hot chicken soup throughout the day. By doing this, you help moisturize your cilia inside the nostrils which in turn increase their movement and the result of this is, mucus in the air passages is washed away leaving behind a clear air pathway which makes it easy for the patient to breathe.


Sinus Infection At the First Sign of a Green or Yellow Sinus Infection







  • We've all experienced the common cold with its nasal congestion, cough and runny nose.
  • Some colds are worse than others and some progress into more serious illnesses.
  • It is important to know the difference so that you can treat the problem most effectively. Surprised
  • You have a thick yellow or green nasal discharge this signals an infection.
  • Usually nasal discharge is thin and clear.
  • The thick mucous may not drain properly which can cause pressure and pain in sinuses and face.
  • You may have a headache.



The Common Cold is Not Usually a Reason for Concern

However, when a cold becomes persistent it may just mean that it has turned into a sinus infection. Many of the symptoms of a sinus infection are the same as those of the common cold. Nasal discharge, cough and sore throat can be symptoms of a cold or of sinusitis. Rolling Eyes

You May Also Develop a Fever

A fever is the body's way of fighting an infection. The fever usually indicates infection is present. Chills can also accompany a fever. The fever is typically low-grade unless the infection becomes more severe. A high fever requires immediate attention by a doctor. It is not necessary that only the learned can write about Sinusitis. As long as one ahs a flair for writing, and an interest for gaining information on Sinusitis, anyone can write about it.

Typical Cold Usually Lasts Several Days and then the Symptoms Improve

If after a few days the symptoms are not showing improvement or are worsening you may have more than a cold. Keep track of your symptoms so you can determine how your illness is progressing. We have taken the privilege of proclaiming this article to be a very informative and interesting article on Sinus Infection. We now give you the liberty to proclaim it too.

Your Symptoms Have Worsened or You Have Developed a Fever You Should See a Doctor

He can help to determine if the problem is a cold or if it is an infection. Sinus infection can usually be treated with antibiotics successfully, especially when they are caught early. The doctor will examine the nose. A red and swollen nasal passage suggests there may be an infection. If he cannot tell for sure he may order a CT scan or MRI. Having been given the assignment of writing an interesting presentation on Sinus Infection Symptoms, this is what we came up with. Just hope you find it interesting too! Idea

Sinus Infection can Cause the Face to Become Painful to the Touch

This is because the swollen nasal cavities are located on the face. The first place you may notice pain is on either side of the bridge of the nose but pain can be anywhere on the face. This type of pain doesn't accompany the common cold. This article on Sinus was written with the intention of making it very memorable to its reader. Only then is an article considered to have reached it's objective.

Sometimes what seems to be a cold is not a cold at all but a sinus infection or allergy sinus. But how can you tell when what you are experiencing is a sinus infection? There are some telltale signs to look for. Quality is better than quantity. It is of no use writing numerous pages of nonsense for the reader. Instead, it is better to write a short, and informative article on specific subjects like Sinus. People tend to enjoy it more.

How many times have you heard someone say: "I think I'm coming down with a cold."? No doubt many times. In fact, most of us have'said that'or made'a similar statement, ourselves. Now a days when someone I know tells me that I usually reply: "Could it be allergies?" Because many of those "colds" are probably allergy reactions to the environment. As I look back to my childhood days one cannot, but wonder at the strong possibility that all those tablespoons of cod liver oil my mother faithfully administered----in their full natural flavor, as commonly done in those days--to prevent my getting a "cold," although not a bad idea'were probably unnecessary since'my frequent runny nose, coughing and'post nasal drip'were very likely'caused by allergens.'Even, perhaps, by'the thick smog'that'had developed in the large city I grew up in.

Several years went by and we moved farther North where carpets are more commonly used than in the Southwest and I began to once again have "cold" symptoms. At least that's what we thought at first. Since I was hardly using cow's milk and had resumed the allergy injections my wife'and I wondered, what could the cause of'the post nasal drip, etc.,'be this time. So I went back to an allergy specialist in our new area.'After doing some testing'he found'I was very allergic to house dust.'In the process of being given the allergy tests I found that not all house dust'is'created equal. Some dusts contain large amounts of dust mite droppings. This kind of'mites thrive in a humid and warm environment, like the one produced by the human body while lying in bed,'where the mites'eat mostly microscopic particles of human skin that rubs off there and on the carpet. The tests'did show'I was very allergic to that kind of house dust. Thereupon I was given minute instructions by my doctor'on how to shield my bed'from the'little varmints and their'droppings. The devastating allergic effects I was having'began to subside, especially when to my allergy injections was added the dust mite droppings antigen. So after reading what we have mentioned here on Sinusitis Post Nasal Drip, it is up to you to provide your verdict as to what exactly it is that you find fascinating here.

As I studied my sinus problem several years ago, I came to the conclusion that the two main causes of my problem were: some foods'and environmental allergies. Whenever I indulged in a milk shake or a large serving of ice cream I had serious post nasal drip in a matter of hours. And whenever I had a large glass of cow's milk 3 or more days in a row I had the same result. I would stop drinking milk for several days or stop eating ice cream and the sinuses would clear up in just a few days. The seeming correlation became so obvious that I finally decided, a number of years ago, to stop using these food items on a regular basis and, of course, the sinuses cleared up indefinitely. Writing on Sinus Problem proved to be a gamble to us. This is because there simply seemed to be nothing to write about in the beginning of writing. It was only in the process of writing did we get more and more to write on Sinus Problem.

There can definitely be an allergy connection to'sinus pressure and other sinus problems. My case is not unique. If one is suffering from ongoing sinus problems it might not be a bad idea to consider testing for allergies to the environment and possibly foods, especially if your health insurance covers these tests. Looking for something logical on Sinus Problem, we stumbled on the information provided here. Look out for anything illogical here. Shocked

Then came spring time and as weeds and their flowers, and trees and their own flowers made their appearance once again in our area, the same allergic reaction I had had to the foods already mentioned, above,'began to reappear, except that' I wasn't using them. So, it became obvious that I was allergic to certain pollens and probably other allergens. I had pollen allergy tests made and sure enough there were a number of pollens I was very allergic to. With these results on hand the only alternative I had was:'move to a place where there were not pollens I was allergic to--probably something rather impossible--or begin to receive allergy injections on a regular basis. I opted for the latter. There are many varieties of Sinuses found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!

Sinus Cavities are a Very Important Part of the Body

Infection or inflammation in the cavities can cause immense pain and pressure. Sinus pressure refers to the pressure caused by an inflamed, infected or mucous filled sinus cavity. Sinus pressure symptoms are similar to symptoms of a common cold which do not respond to common medication which is usually given for a cold. Sinus pressure can also be caused due to an allergy of some kind. People living in dusty areas complain of sinus more often. Shocked

There are Four Main Sinus Cavities in the Body

They are located on either side of the nose, behind and in-between the eyes, and in the forehead. Each sinus cavity has an opening into the nose for the exchange of air and mucous. When the cavities get filled with mucous it creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent! Shocked



  • Sinus pressure symptoms normally occur for about ten days and they may carry on for a longer period if a cold or flu occurs.
  • They normally worsen after five to seven days.
  • In some cases fever also occurs.
  • Fever is more common in children than in adults therefore it is not a very reliable way of diagnosing sinus pressure. Embarassed



Rare complications along with sinusitis cure produce additional symptoms, which may be severe or life threatening. It is very important to treat sinus pressure symptoms quickly before they get unbearably painful. Whenever one reads any reading matter, it is vital that the person enjoys reading it. One should grasp the meaning of the matter, only then can it be considered that the reading is complete.

Some of the most common sinus pressure symptoms include severe nasal congestion and yellowish green discharge which is thick because it contains pus. Pain in the teeth is also very normal. This pain increases when you bend over. Symptoms may vary however, depending on the sinuses involved. Thinking of life without Sinus Cavity seem to be impossible to imagine. This is because Sinus toothache be applied in all situations of life.



  • Far more severe sinus pressure symptoms are terrible headaches, pain or pressure in specific areas of the face and redness in the eyes.
  • Bulging and painful eyes also occur if the sinus infection occurs around the eyes.
  • In some cases, the patients also have double vision or even temporary vision loss.
  • A persistent cough (especially during the day), fever and fatigue are also symptoms of sinus pressure.
  • The most common symptom of sinus pressure is facial pain.
